    Sodium has nothing to do with fat.

    However, if you are looking for vascularity or want to retain less water, you need to cut back on the sodium.

    Sodium is anabolic. Unless you have high BP eat more instead of less when dieting.

    How does sodium alter vascularity? Because your muscles have more water in them so veins are less visible? How prevalent is this
